Agnostic Front-Madball-Crown Of Thornz-25 Ta Life-Corrupt-NJ Bloodline-Fury Of V @ Stone Pony Asbury Park NJ 4-19-97

I heard about Agnostic Front getting back together sometime the previous summer. I had at a gig and someone I knew just randomly threw it into a conversation. I was online by the summer of 96, but besides a few websites and IRC, was more engaged in dorky fan culture and anime stuff while I was online back then, so news had not reached me about this. They played a few shows that winter and then more in the spring, which included a show in DC and then this one in New Jersey. So while a ton of people went…

H20-Fastbreak-E Town Concrete @ Stone Pony In Asbury Park NJ Summer 1996

I think Fury Of V played this show too. Killing Time canceled. This was the first time I saw Fastbreak. I had just heard them a few days before (remember, music traveled a bit slower back then) and they were really good. This was also the first time I saw E-Town Concrete too, who seemed to play a ton of shows back then. This was a record release, or right after it, for the first H20 album. I remember a ton of people from my high school were at this show. Lots of rando pop punk kids. That is why…

Full Speed Ahead-The Explosion-Stag Party-Born Annoying-Defiance Engine-Manalive @ Asbury Park NJ 7-26-14

This was supposed to be a secret show, which was not kept very well, for Bl’ast! on the east coast. They ended up cancelling their tour, but the show goes on with The Explosion replacing them. I debated not going to this show after a few friends bailed on it, but figured I could check out Full Speed Ahead again. The show time apparently got pushed back, so this show ended up going really late. After a dreadful time finding parking, I got to the show before any band had even played. This was going to be a long night.…

Cro Mags-Heavy Chains-Manipulate-Stag Party-Blind Justice at Asbury Lanes in Asbury Park, NJ 12-19-13

I ended off 2013 by heading out to see the Cro-Mags. They haven’t played down the shore probably since the show at Middlesex County College in 1994 (which my friends skipped to go see Earth Crisis and Four Walls Falling in Philadelphia! Dicks.) unless you count them playing at Club Krome in 2002. The semester had just ended and I trekked across the state to get to the gig. I ran into some friends at the show, but everyone was kind of off in their own little worlds, which is fine but it made me feel like I was always…

Shelter-Downset-H2o-Fury of V at Stone Pony Asbury Park NJ 5-5-96

During the winter of 1995-1996, I did not really go to shows for some reason. I think it was a combination of a lack of rides (I was still 16 and about a year away from having my own car) and starting at my first ever job. Our friend who drove to shows dropped out of high school and went through some pretty serious personal problems around this time, so we had to scramble to get other rides, which led to a lot of missed shows. Shelter came through the area and I drove up this show with Crystal and…

H20-Hands Tied-Skarhead-Fury Of V @ Stone Pony In Asbury Park NJ Winter 1998

This show happened in early 1998 I think. I remember Tim announcing it at the By The Grace Of God show in Yardley back in December. I don’t remember a lot about this show other than that h2o were horrible, BUT they covered “I Want More” by Suicidal Tendencies at the end of their set, which got the crowd really going. That is seriously all I remember about this show.

Warped Tour 1997

It’s so funny to me that my students still go to this thing and are super psyched on it. Back in the nineties, this seemed so corporate and annoying. I cannot even imagine what it is like now, but I guess FESTS are this massively normal thing now, so whatever. No one seems to blink an eye either at the expense of these shows either. I only went to this because I got onto some kind of promotional guest list. The local record store got some passes so they gave me one and a few friends of mine got them…

Madball-Hatebreed-Fury Of V at The Stone Pony in Asbury Park, NJ April 1998

Wait, why is a Floorpunch video above? Well, I skipped that Floorpunch gig because I went to see Madball either the day before or the next day. I think at least. I am pretty sure I could only have one night off, so I went to see Madball. Odd choice? Not really. Madball were one of the best, if not best, live bands of that era. I think CJ and I went to this show. I don’t remember who else played this besides these bands, but maybe Second To None did too? I don’t really remember anything about Fury Of…
